Back by popular demand, we're offering the Community Manager Certification Workshop at LiNC! And we're thrilled to add another certification workshop about Social Customer Strategy.
Here are the top 5 reasons you should join a Certification Workshop... here we go,
#5: To solidify and deepen your proficiency and skills in community management and social customer care
#4: To join the ranks of globally recognized certified professionals, social strategists, and practitioners
#3: To experience a memorable day! Here’s what others Community Manager Workshop participants have said (in their words...):
“One of the best certification sessions of any kind I have ever seen.”
“This was definitely a graduate-school course in community management.”
"Despite my tenure in communities spanning back to the BBS days and connecting with baud modems, I walked away with two pages overflowing with notes focusing on ways to improve our community ... This was a valuable experience, no doubt about it. My thanks again to the Li team."
"I came away with some notes and definitely some things we should start doing and a couple of things that we should probably stop doing as well. The body of knowledge was impressive."
#2: To receive a comprehensive workbook that serves as an incredibly valuable reference after the sessions.
... and the number one reason you should attend a certification workshop
#1: To receive a personalized certificate for your office and branded signature icon! As one participant expressed: "Woo Hoo! Enterprise Community Management certificate just arrived. It's going to look rad on my office wall."
OK, seriously… here's more information about each of the workshops. And we sold out last year, so it's a good idea to register as soon as possible.
